Prato and Pistoia

Description

From the green mountains of the Bisenzio Valley to the large plane surrounded by the gentle hills of Montalbano lies a Province strongly attached to its culture where history, art and nature blend harmoniously.
Do not miss to visit the Dome's square in Pistoia, the Cathedral, the Bell-tower and the Baptistery, in addition to the ancient XIV century walls and the Medicean fortress dedicated to St. Barbara. But the symbol of the province of Pistoia is the park entirely dedicated to the most important puppet all around the world, Pinocchio, whose famous author, Carlo Lorenzini, was born in Collodi, hamlet of the town of Pescia (then Collodi became his pen name).
